I just bought a 2004 Navi with 133,000 miles on it.
Normally I would NEVER buy such a high mileage car, but it is absolutely beautiful.
Much nicer than my first one.
They wanted 8600, I offered 7500 and we settled at 8000. The CD changer doesn't work-but they're fixing it, the rear AC making some strange knocking sound (which seems to be very common based on the reviews)-they're also fixing that, the ashtray door on front panel won't close, the heat and air on driver seat works only sometimes, GAS GUZZLER.
Haven't had it long enough to see if any mechanical issues will develop.
At those miles I'm sure they will, and I will rewrite my review when they do.

6 out of 8 ignition coils went bad $250 per cyl;
serpentine tensioner went bad $310;
muffler sound deadener shot;
trailer hitch rusting;
rear hatch paint bubbled at 50,001 miles;
rear heating/ac fan makes "popping" sound;
air suspension not sounding right...
CD player not working right....
and now, at 77,024 miles
transmission just went bad - est repair $2000.
For a vehicle we mainly drive to and from work and Costco, this so called top of the line gas guzzling beast should not have these kinds of problems at 77,000 miles. Ford should be ashamed. Instead, there is nothing they can do because it's "out of warranty" and they're "sorry you feel" like you were ripped off. No they are not sorry!
The Navigator is now available in just two trim levels -- Luxury and Ultimate. Vehicles equipped with the Audiophile stereo now include separate tweeters for better sound quality. New safety features include a tire-pressure monitoring system as standard equipment and a Roll Stability Control feature (to help prevent rollover incidents) for the Advance Trac system. Sirius Satellite Radio is a new dealer-installed option.
